All-over printing or sublimation is a print process where your design is first printed on paper with dye ink, and then transferred directly onto the fabric with heat. Sublimation lets you cover all of the garment with your design instead of, for example, DTG printing where the print area is much smaller.

In general, sublimation works best on smooth surfaces where the majority of the fabric is made out of a polyester blend. Each of our fabrics has its characteristics to consider when designing and creating your all-over print products with Subliminator.

Fabric composition:
82% Polyester / 18% Spandex

The smooth and tight knit surface allows for any print to come out really vibrant and detailed. Dark solid colors such as black might look less dark when the product (e.g. legging) is worn and the fabric is stretched. This is unavoidable, because the base fabric color is always white onto which the sublimation is applied.

The smooth and tight knit surface allows for any print to come out really vibrant and detailed. Because of the knit of the fabric we don't recommend using dark solid colors such as black on this fabric. Because this fabric as cotton, the surface can show some tiny lighter areas on the fabric surfaces. Colorful designs work best with this fabric. The inside of the fabric is brushed and has a nice soft touch to it.
